    You should definitely write fan fic if you don't already!

    Bit of an odd question, but does anyone have a spare Animated Shockwave left thigh cover and head panel, or know where I could get one? I managed to land a near-complete figure missing only those parts and I'd love to be able to finish it off...

    Yeah it was compared to current clones. Saw a Battle Ravage on eBay and liked the look of the animal mode (robot looks terrible).

    Just added the first wave of Mezco Hellboy The Movie 2004 action figures to my eBay - Items for sale by tusky_mcmammoth | eBay - Just got the comic book ones to add tomorrow and then I'm pretty much out of shit to sell.

    All I've ever wanted.in my collection, even as a kid, we're the toys from the Movie and Rebirth (okay and in the last few years the Lost Light crew). I pre-ordered them minutes after they were revealed, and thanks to this thread went to SAF instead of fighting with IDT. This morning I thought I'd like a second Hot Rod and it seems the pre-orders are all out. I'm hoping they're available for all, but just couldn't risk it with this line.

    I absolutely love this!

    Sorry, no, but I just wanted to say Spare-Animated-Shockwave-Left-thigh-cover-quest is a quest I want to go on

    Little question for the modders of the thread - if you were to pick a colour for the yellow comic eyes for Optimus, which of these would you go with?

    Awesome, thanks, ordered!

    Random Friday night question from me...
    Why is Titans Return Brainstorm so much harder to get a hold of than any of the other headmasters?

    I mean I appreciate he was a big character in MTMTE, but the T30 figure was exactly Lost Light Brainstorm. Plus the others were all new molds, he's just a Blurr remold. Was he not easily available at the time? Shortpacked?

    I’m pretty sure he was a Walgreens exclusive so pretty elusive over here.

    That explains it, though, y'know, what the fuck Hasbro? That's so annoying now, I can't imagine how annoyed you lot must have been back then.

    There go my hopes for a load of them going up on sale when people buy the new version coming out

    As already asserted he was that line's Walgreens Wankery OR he was available in G1 baby blue deco (Walgreens was on the very green side of blue green, I think a deliberate IDW MTMTE/LL nod?) in the Titan Force convention 3-pack which was him (G1 toy colours), a transparent Sentinel Prime, and a repainted NuRID mould Windblade, possibly one of THE worst box sets ever assembled. That's the version I snagged, and I was fortunately able to get shot of the other two to some poor, unfortunate souls - I believe at least one of whom may have frequented this very thread? If not both?

    Off the top of my head, I would have said the last one. But I haven’t read those comics, only the ones where he’s the powermaster design.

    just spotted the old leader class Rodimus Unicronus on Kapow, hope to god they discount it after Christmas. That mold looks fantastic in black.

    I’d agree, I think the last one too but always up for other opinions!

    Also agree on the Rodimus Unicronus too, it looks sleek in black, plus he’s got that cheeky ‘tache going on as well.

    Here’s a bit more comic love :

    Jeez how much does Shockwave look like Cloud 9 Quakeblast on that cover ! He’s a figure I regret selling. Still got MP29 Lavenderwave, but I miss that chonky not with the metallic purple paint. Sellers remorse about 3 years on!

    It’s been another good week at the new job. Had my last pay from former employer today which was effectively a bonus, so treated myself to origins he-man and skeletor on Amazon, and got us a nice curry in for tea tonight. Simple things and all that!

    Origins Man-E-Faces and MOTWWEU New Day

    20201031_002038.jpg

    Hasbro take note. There's not a single re-used part between the two. Although there really could have been and it wouldn't have lessened either figure any. Maybe Mattel should take note of Hasbro?

    At £15 each for Origins, they really are the toy bargain of the year. Shame I've had to spend almost double that importing the WWE ones, but they're awesome.

    Loving my random action figures at the moment.
